The Anne-Frank Garden ... again.

In November 2010 I already wrote about the little Anne-Frank Garden (see here), so well hidden behind some buildings that very few people manage to find their way to it, although so close to a place which receives a lot of visitors, the Centre Pompidou (see my previous posts).   In my previous post I wrote about the chestnut tree that Anne had been looking at “nearly every morning” and which was blown down by a storm in 2010, but of which a graft had been planted here, when the ...

How to plan a winter trip to Banff

The jagged peaks and alpine lakes of Banff National Park fill 2,500 square miles of western Alberta. The area, which encompasses the towns of Banff and Lake Louise, along with three ski resorts and some of Canada’s most rugged backcountry terrain, is both surreal and irresistible. You could almost picture Frodo Baggins on his fantastic mission — traversing his way up and across the mountains, narrowly evading capture among the craggy pitches that stretch across the provincial border into Brit...

AirAsia Fly to Melaka From Penang Daily from RM 12 One Way

After years of waiting, finally AirAsia will start flying from Melaka Airport. AirAsia spreads its wings to the historical state of Melaka with new daily direct flights from Penang starting 1 July 2019.

A Guide: Embarking on a Successful Trip Hiking with Kids

There are a host of benefits to be gotten from taking your kids on a hiking experience. It is a much healthier and far more productive pastime than allowing them to play on their game consoles all day, for a start. What’s more, it will allow them to get out there and see more of the natural world, which could end up inspiring them to be more at one with nature during their adulthood.

Thrilling ATV Adventures – Best Things to do in St. George Utah

I think an oh shit even slipped out of my mouth as I pressed my foot down on the accelerator and roared up the sand dune. Breathing was tight, possibly even held, as that old familiar fear from my youth arrived. It would take my breath and freeze me in the back seat of our car as my nervous mother attempted to drive up the vertical notorious Rampart. As a child it fel...

Product Launch & GTM

Launching a product is a very exciting moment for a Product Manager! There are a number of resources online which focuses on (1) Product Readiness for launch (Code complete,  Build,  Test, Q/A, Release etc.) (2) Marketing activities for launch (Event, Web Collateral, Website, Case Studies, Press Release etc.) Over the past few years, I have been involved in Product launches / GTM efforts.
